4:02 pm
direct mail that happened just last week. then it was on to theiroint news conference where mr. castro was asked about political prisoners and he had a very testy response. >> i have said consistently after more than five very difficult decades, the relationship between our governments will not be transformed overnight. we continue as president castro indicated, to have some very serious differences, including on democracy and human rights.

4:03 pm
has not yet made it to the brewery. but there was a lot of response not on here from journalists but also around havana as castro had to answer those very tgh questions. we're going to have that reaction in just a moment. but let's take you back to this morning what i lot of tourists happened to be out there at the plaza dederevolution. they had a lot of reaction. l that's right, calvin. this morning really was about the president paying homage to jose marti with cuba's' national hero, but the folks we met whether american or cuban, were paying homage to the president's first-time visit. in the shadow of jose martu, cuba's national hero, a found be father of this caribbean nation, president obama lays a wreath, and watching it all, some americans and coincidental fre miami. >> i think it's an incredible opportunity in regards to people-to-people diplomacy. >> hatzel: nathaniel styles has
4:04 pm
he is proud the president of the voyage. everybody that's here every time we have come here, they be excited about obama. no animosity, no resentment. they welcome the c`ange. >> hatzel: styles moved up his visit a week so we can be here the president. >> i think it's significant tt obama would be the person considering he is a man of color and the population of cuba is greatly about 70% people of color. >> everybody needs to talk. >> hatzel: harn, his friend also from miami, knows he's a witness to history. changes, the opportunities that there's a benefit here. >> it's not about the it's about the people. ask it's a great day in terms of opportunity for the cuban people. >> hatzel: those are two americans, specifically from
4:05 pm
and shared those with us this morning, but we also spoke to a cuban man who was wearing an american flag, and he said this was his third attempt at trying to see the preresident. no chance. the one thing that i took away from speaking with him was the fact that he felt like the cuban people had not been given the chance yet to really interact with the president, to even see the president because, as you and i seen, lots of road closures, lots of security measures to keep people away from the area where the president is traveling. >> calvin: you know, i think, despite -- in spite of what has happened all day long and all the events that of happened, i think the news conference seems to be what everyone is focusedon. what was your reaction when you saw mr. castro take a questn about political prisoners? you group in south florida. you know the history, and you know the context, and for raul castro to stand there and sort of waiver waver, maybe hesitate,
4:06 pm
his voice when asked about that issue, the political prisoners issue, it was amazing to see, being -- and the fact that we're here in havana and that the question is being asked by an american journalist, what a day. >> calvin: he almost felt like he didn't have to answer the question. it was almost like how dare you ask me this. >> hatzel: let's be premium the cuban media for a long time has not had the accessibility that american media has back in the states to the united states president, and so it is something that he truly is used to. he doesn't have to answer any questions. but here we were in a different format, in a different time period and he had to answer. >> calvin: and then there was that very awkward moment at the end, and we'll show you that picture coming up at 5:00 when mr. castro walked up to president obama, t ty didn't know whether to shake hands or not but itnded up being something very weird and it seemed very awkward at the end. we will show that you coming up at 5:00. but we want to take you now to what happened with michelle obama today.
4:07 pm
president for those bilateral talks, and she w!sn't with him at the wreath-laying ceremony, but she happened to be at what's called the old cuban factory in old havana and there she met with ten teenage girls who were selected. they were there to talk about art, but they were also there to talk about mrs. obama empowering young girls, and she even said to them "you can ask me anything." and when you empower young girls, you also empower the people family. so michelle obama meeting with young tnage girls about her let girls learn initiative, bringing it here to havana, cuba, to talk with a selected group of young people. and we're going to have a lot more coming up on t both of them as they will have a state dinner tonight at the revolutionary palace but we'll have a lot more andcomprehensive coverage what has happened so far here in havana. what a day it h been. janine and laurie, i'll send it back to you. >> laurie: thank you so much.

4:28 pm
great pollo. annos and, of course, cerveza. but today we're here to work so i want to thank all of you for being part of this unprecedented event. the cuban government, the u.s.chamber of commerce, and the new u.s. cuba business council. i also want to express by appreciation because we are joined on this trip by nearly 40 members of congress as well as some of america's top business leaders and innovator who are eager to invest in hugh and its people. and most importantly -- invest in cuba. want it to welcome all the extraordinary entrepreneurs, men and women, who are here from across cuba. now, i'm not here to give a big speech. i'm going to do that tomorrow. what i really want to do is hear from you and have a conversation about what we can a chief together. but i do want to begin by stepping back and talking about the forces and hopes that bring us together here today.
4:29 pm
can be understood through the labor of the cuban people. for centuries under colonial rule and then during decades of american involvement, the toil of the cuban people was often used to enrich others as opposed to the people who were doing the work. and then for much of the past half century it was virtually impossible for cubans to operate their own businesses. but in recent years that's begun to change. to its credit, the cuban government has adopted some reforms.cuba is welcoming more foreign investment. cubans can now buy and sell property. and today many cans own their own homes and apartments. it's easier for cubans to travel, to buy a cell phone, for farmers to start cooperatives, and for a family to start their n business. the united states has been proud to help. shortly after i took office, we said that cuban americans could
4:30 pm
they are families h@re in cuba, and we allowed cuban americans to visit more often. across this island cubans have used those remittances, often to start businesses, and when cuban americans come visit, they oft bring supplies and materials. we also made it easier for cubanentrepreneurs to import and to export. and since we have made it easier to travel to cuba, a lot more americans are vising the island. you may have noticed.so the cuban economy is beginning to change, and just look at the results. groups like cuba yimprende are training a new j jks entrepreneurs. today half a million cubans, including some of you, are proud -- rung your own restaurants, cafes, beauty salons, barber shops or working as artists, seamstresses, and taxi drivers. your busininses now employ about
4:31 pm
workforce. with help there services look air b&b more americans are staying at your cast as you particularlyoris and eating at your -- [ speaking in spanish ] like my family did last night. the food waseally good, even if my spanish is not that great. [ laughter ] those of you who run your on business know what this means. you can earn a little more money for your family. you can provide more for your children and then therors the pride from creating something new and improving the livesf those around you, and that's the power of entrepreneur shi. it'sbout self-determination, the opportunity to forge your own future. it's the belief that even if you don't have much, maybe just a kitchen or a sewing machine or a car, if you're willing to work hard, yocan make your own way and improve your situation in
4:32 pm
it's the spirit ofouth, talented and driven daring young people, like so many of you, ready to make your mark on the world. it's an investment in the future, because as we have seen in america, businesses that start small, en in a garage, can grow into some of the world's most successful companies and change the way we work and the way we live and connect with eh other. that's the spirit of entrepreneurship, and that's what we're encouragi here today. because cuba's economic future, its ability to create more jobs and a growing middle class and meet the aspirations of the cuban people depends on growth in the private sector as well as government action. and it's not easy. in the united states we work to help entrepreneurs and small businesses get the resources they need because it can be a struggle to get a new venture off the ground. around the world we help young people and entrepreneurs access training and skills to put theirideas into action.
4:33 pm
the challenges you face as entrepreneurs in cuba. now, many of the changes that our two countries have already announced, including today, will help youo meet some of the those challenges. more americans coming to cuba means more customers for your businesses. more americans using t t dollar will mean that they will spend more as well. there will be more channels for you to import supplies and equipment. more americans will be able to buy your arts, crafts, food, cuban-origin software, as well as, of course, cuban cigars. we also know that around the world entrepreneurs flourish when there's an environment that encourages their success, when professionals like architects and engineers and lawyers are allowed to start their own businesses as well. when entrepreneurs can get loans from banks, capital to start and expand their business.
4:34 pm
markets where you can buy supplies, and when there's a single issues and a modern infrastructure psycho get your goods to market and import supplies. and perhaps most importantly when everybody has a chance to succeed, including women and afro-cubans. these are all aas where the united states hopes to be a partner as cuba moves forward. and i can tell you one of the reasons i'm so confident in the potential of the cuban people is because you he some important advantages. your commiment to education and very high literacy rates, that gives you an enormous advantage in the 21st century. that's been an investment that has been made here in cuba. your ingenuity. who else could keep -- rung all these years. you've got m me than 300 million potential american customers and one of the world's most dynamic
4:35 pm
and you he more than 2 million talented, successful cuban americans, some of whom joined me on this trip, readyo invest in you and help pursue your dreams and have deep family commitments, and and dp roots in cuban culture. so i'm absolutely convinced if just given a chance, more cubans can succeed right herere at home in the cuba that you love. so i'm here today to say that america wants to be your partner around this sprint american companies moving forward with new commercial families ge is goingg to sell more products from aviation to technology. cleaver will be the first u.s. company to baled factory here in re than 50 years. they're going to build tractors for can farmers. starwood will become the first u.s.s.otel that operates here in nearly 60 years. anan marriott plans to come as well. and they'll help training cubans in the hospitality industry.
4:36 pm
expected to pull into havana in may, and i will -- carnival cruise-- and i will keepsake one of the best ways to help cubans succeed and improve their lives would be for the u.s. congress to lift the embargo once and for all. [ applause ] you know here today we're doing even more to empower cuban entrepreneurs. i know you've been network week each other and potential american partners. innovators in business like air b&b and prine chesske are sharing the things they have learned. we have a shark named may don't shon@john. for those of you who don't know there's a show in america called the shark tank which is an outstanding show where o
4:37 pm
bring their ideas and present them and they try to get some financing right there on the air, and it's a fun show to watch. julie hanna supports entrepreneurs all over the world with micro-financing, so give them your best pit@h. they just might bite. and decideo best intense we're also announcing some new commitments today. as part of our young leaders in the americas initiative, we're going to welcome up to 15 young cuban entrepreneurs to the united states to help them get the training and skills to grow their own business. for the first time we'll welcome cubans to our annual global entrepreneurship summit, which i'll host in silicon valley later this year. and later this year our small business administrator maria contreras sweet who is here with us today -- there she is -- she's going to lead a delegation of business leaders had to promote more entrepreneurship in cuba.
4:38 pm
more cuban entrepreneurs to the internet. some are here today, including gutierrez who kind olmes a, an app to connect cubanso restaurants, and infoet med, connecting doctors and students 69. more companies are going online at wi-fi hot spots but still very few gans have internet access, although iust learned that my skip with benfillo got 2 million hit here in cuba, so i think anyone with internet access paid attention here. and -- but in terms of internet access, even those who have it often are using old dial-up connections that can be kevin and slow. i don't even remember the sound of the phone. neee. you know, the -- so new technology has come and we need to bring it to cuba. if we had internet, and one cuban entrepreneur said, we
4:39 pm
so america wants hope to you take off, and verizon will help deliver direct land line phone connections between cuba and the united states. sisco has announced it will help cuban students develop their i.t. skills. the american high-tech firm stripe is partnering with a start-up circle here in havana to help cubans start verifies and do business online. so the bottom line is this: we believe in the cuban people, we believe in artists like ileana del rey oh who designs and illustrates her own goods. 99% cuban designs, she calls it. we believe in merchants like sandra m medici who says one of the most important things in the cuban nature is perseverance, optimism, and our capacity to find a solution to any obstacle in the way.
4:40 pm
who said, i think these changes in cuba, there's no turning back. another who said, this opens us up to the world. and one who also said, just give us the chance, just give us the chance. well, as your friend and as your partner, the united states of america wants to help you get that chance, and we're so grateful that we're off to this outstanding start at this event here today. matureos gracias. thank you. muchos gracias. thank you very much. thank you.
